U.S. Navy Fighters includes the F-14B, F-18D, F-22, and A-7 aircraft, as well as the Russian Su-33 Navy Flanker and the F-104 Starfighter. Four modes of play include 50 single campaign missions, a Tour of Duty, Quick Mission Builder, and a Pro Mission Builder. In campaign mode, you select planes, loadouts, targets, and waypoints for each mission. In addition to two mission builders, the game offers a fairly realistic flight simulation model, accurately modeled planes, and simplified avionics to lessen time required to learn each plane's control system in detail.
